D.C. Artist Robert Weiner

Colorwave by Robert Weiner

Is this an art quilt?

No, but it sure looks like one doesn't it?

It is actually a glass piece by D.C. glass artist Robert Weiner. According to his website, he uses over 170 murrine design combinations that he fuses at low temperatures. This piece is part of his "Colorbar Murrine Series" and I think it's gorgeous. His work will be among the 120 artists chosen to participate in the Smithsonian Crafts Show, April 20-23, at the National Building Museum.

Aha! another person who is attracted to works in other mediums that have a quilt-like quality. See my post (http://serendipitypatchwork.blogspot.com/2006/04/beyond-quilts.html) for another example...
